Cool Outdoor Stuff: The Great Goose Exodus with Andy McCown


Echo Hill Outdoor School’s Andrew McCown is back with another edition of Cool Outdoor Stuff. This time, Andy notes the bittersweet exit of geese to Canada on a blustery St. Patrick’s Day with videographer Jack Elliott. The wind eases up for just enough time to end with a Joel Barber poem dedicated to the recently departed.

The video runs approximately three minutes

    Great story by Captain Andy on one of the more subtle but surest signs that spring is on its way. Looks like today – Thursday, March 28th – is that day that the remaining flocks of geese have chosen to depart the Eastern Shore for Canada, as I have seen three large Vs flying high and heading due north this morning!
